It also offers an optional night in one of Scotland’s oldest castles on Sunday 12 June, immediately prior to the main tour starting in Glasgow on Monday 13th.
The tour covers eight islands of the inner and outer Hebrides and goes all the way to the northwestern most tip of the Outer Hebrides. It features eleven ferry rides and also the ‘Harry Potter’ steam train journey from Ft William to Mallaig. There’s even a chance to look for the Loch Ness monster (sighting not guaranteed!), plenty of castles and ancient mysterious things, and even some distillery visits too.
Here’s a lot of helpful and detailed material about this tour.

We do not expect to run this tour for a third year in a row next year, so you should act now to reserve your spaces for the 2011 tour.
